Satsum is a highly textured "orange "wine that shines with food, particularly with savory foods high in umami - think mushrooms, uni, botargo, etc.. These wines are hybrids in that they have flavors and textures of both red and white wines. This is certainly not a mainstream Chardonnay is more about the process than the variety.

Production Notes
Inspired by the wines of Friuli, Slovenia, and the republic of Georgia this skin macerated "orange" wine, made from Chardonnay, is a unique expression of our Santa Cruz Mountains terroir. We placed whole Chardonnay clusters in our clay amphora for 3 months of skin contact. In December we drained the free-run, cleaned the amphora, and returned the wine to the amphora.
